Customer Reviews

Hi Hi, We really enjoyed our wine tasting tour to Stellenbosch and Franschhoek! We felt Lord Terrance was the perfect guide and the day was nicely paced, giving us plenty of time at each wine tasting venue and for the stroll through Franschhoek. We were fortunate to share our tour with a great bunch of like-minded people. We enjoyed the first (Hoopenburg) and final (Mitres Edge) visits the most (these places are where we made our wine purchases!). Top marks to Wine Flies, who delivered the promised great day out - fully recommended. One note, Lord Terrance took a group image (in the mini-bus) which was posted to Instagram - we’re not on Instagram, so is there any chance of you emailing a copy? If we ever return to Cape Town, you can be sure of our custom. Kind regards, Karen and Phil Moore - Karen Moore


Such an amazing experience! Very friendly, fun, and professional! - Gabrielle Musacchio


Amazing trip with a cool guide! The smaller vineyards (Mitre’s Edge and Lovane) were incredible; the pairings were unbelievably delicious. 100% would recommend. - Mrinmayee Dhar


The tour was lovely and the experience quite enriching. One learns more about many aspects of winery that often do not get shared. There were also some lovely people on the tour and the interactions made the experience all the more fun. A big thanks to lord V as well for being a great tour guide. - Lionel Wentworth and Joy Mokgoroane


Efficient and clear communication before departure. We had a great day, very nice guide and he was a good driver :). Lunch was also fine. thanks! - Jacqueline Aalbers
